Core Contents Media CEO Kim Kwang Soo recently told the tale of how he discovered the newest member of T-ara, Dani.
He did so willfully to the press, not under the pressure of police interrogation, which was interesting since the way he found her was … uh … a tad creepy.
Core Contents Media, T-ara’s parent company, recently revealed how the young American became the newest member of the group. “Dani was cast on the street by Kim Kwang Soo,” said a representative for CCM. “It was his first streetside casting in his 30-year-long career in entertainment.”
So an old, creepy, somewhat deformed looking CEO approached a young girl in a way one would approach a prostitute or something. It’s the same way “scouts” recruit “models” (porn stars), and I mean fucking seriously, what do you see on a 12-year-old that’s appealing?
Dani, who has lived in the United States since she was four years old, had been visiting Korea to meet her parents. After seeing her standing at a crosswalk, Kim Kwang Soo turned his car around when thoughts of her wouldn’t leave his head, CCM revealed.
The thought of a tween wouldn’t leave his head, so he turned the car around to pick her up.
Seriously though, all he needs to add at this point is that he was masturbating in public while checking her out from afar and he would be on the fucking sex offender watch list.
Although having no prior experience in singing or acting nor any desire to become a singer, CCM was confident that they had discovered an unpolished jewel. Street castings, although popular ten years ago, have fallen out of favor – with auditions being the preferred method of selecting new trainees.
KKS: “HEY LITTLE GURL DO YOU WANT TO COME WORK FOR ME”
Dani: “Uh … no thanks. I don’t want a career in entertainment, so I’ll be going if you don’t m…”
KKS: “NO I’LL GIVE YOU SPECIAL LESSONS LATE AT NIGHT IN MY OFFICE SO COME WITH ME”
Dani: *Mouths “Help Me” To Everybody KKS Introduces Her To*
I imagine their interaction went something along those lines and she’s now being secretly held prisoner in a dungeon or something.
Seriously though, he managed to make this sound as creepy as humanly possible.
